With that said, we wanted to say thanks to all of our readers for your support over the past year. Your emails, comments, pictures, videos and opinions have meant so much to us and continue to give us the motivation to turn out information for the neighborhood. Please keep them coming!
We would also like to take a moment to update our readers on the state of Sloopin. Our readership grew by 58% in 2011 (from 2010) and we exceeded the half million page views threshold this year.
While the bulk of those views came from the neighborhood, we would like to take a moment to call out some of our foreign readers (like we have in the past). Canada was the number one foreign country in regard to readership (we presume because we have some Blackhawks posts occasional) followed by the UK. And even though we only garnered one view from this country, we would like to thank the brave sole from Zimbabwe that graced our site this year.
2011 was a step in the right direction for many reasons - here's to hoping 2012 is even better!
